Police Officer In Charge Of Policing At Hillsborough To Face Trial On Manslaughter Charges.

: 12/06/2018 - 13:55

In the UK, the police officer who was in charge of the police operation during the Hillsborough disaster will face trial on manslaughter charges.

An application to halt the prosecution against David Duckenfield has been rejected.

The former chief superintendent faces 95 charges of gross negligence manslaughter after supporters were crushed at the stadium during the 1989 FA Cup semi-final.

The trial will begin next month.
